Published: 4 Oct 2021
Abstract: According to the European Commission announcement: Advancement of schools and skillful teaching, by a Resolution of the European Parliament on education in the digital age, Serbia has formulated The Strategy for Education Development that accentuates the need of establishing new teaching and learning methods in the ever mobile and digital world. Educational politics in Serbia is directed at promoting the key digital competencies required for the 21st century life. Development of modern digital technology opened up new opportunities for advancement in education which enables students to gain knowledge, required for future work and life, in a faster and more exceptional manner. Although it has already been recognized that education should undergo a more complex digital transformation, the transformation has occurred suddenly and abruptly due to pandemic COVID-19. We conducted research on students who had their first experience with online classes last year due to the pandemic. The research was carried out on College of Health Studies, Cuprija, Serbia, on final year students, a week after the end of the first semester. Our results suggest that students had positive experience and attitudes toward online learning, high levels of functional skills, and lower levels of strategic competencies (information evaluation, content creating, knowledge constructing, creativity). This paper further considers the results of the study and demonstrates the process of changing the nature of knowledge, and the change in education methods in the future.
